‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams 1×06: Human Is’ Review

Just what is it that makes us human? That is the question that is asked in this episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. With Bryan Cranston starring in this episode, a lot of expectation had built up around it. Does it live up to the hype that the Breaking Bad actor brings?

When Silas Herrick (Bryan Cranston) returns from a disastrous mission to Rexor IV he comes back a changed man. When Vera (Essie Davis) notices the changes, she likes the new him. When it seems that he could be a Rexorian though, will she give up the new better husband?

In Human Is we see Silas as an abusive husband in an unloving relationship. Emotionless and cold he pushes Vera to find comfort by other means. This is why his return from Rexor IV is so strange. He comes back as a loving man who gives her everything that she ever wants.

Exclusive: Liam Cunningham on working with Bryan Cranston and Essie Davis on Electric Dreams

Justin Cook spoke to Liam Cunningham at New York Comic Con about his role in the upcoming episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, “Human Is”…

After working for 25 years in the film/TV industry, Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham has gained enough experience and perspective to realize that all he can really hope for as an actor is “the company that [he] keeps” – and as it turns out, he got to keep the company of some hugely talented performers while working on Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.

Cunningham had nothing but praise for his Electric Dreams co-stars when Flickering Myth asked him about working on “Human Is” with Bryan Cranston, multiple Emmy winner and star of Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad, and Essie Davis, a Game of Thrones alum and star of The Babadook.

Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: 7 reasons to get excited

Rob Leane Jun 30, 2017

Channel 4 and Amazon are bringing us a Phillip K Dick anthology series that's worth getting excited about...

Philip K. Dick’s writing has been translated to the screen numerous times, with most of the results being brilliant in their own ways: Blade Runner remains one of the best-loved sci-fi films of all time; Minority Report stands out as one of the best Tom Cruise movies; Total Recall, the first one, has cult classic status; and The Man In The High Castle has really captured imaginations over the last couple of years.

Now, Amazon and Channel 4 are teaming up to offer fans an unprecedented number of Dick-adapted stories all at once. Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is an anthology series, arriving this autumn, which gives short stories from the iconic author a Black Mirror sort of treatment.

Humans Season 2 Review

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Can a human and a machine love one another? This is the question Humans dedicates itself to not only asking, but to asking in as many ways possible.

The show exists in a setting familiar to most science-fiction fans: a world in which lifelike humanoid machines populate society’s homes and businesses. Like the hosts of Westworld or the replicants of Blade Runner, they’re anatomically identical to humans and nearly blend in with humans. However, unlike hosts and replicants, the “Synths” of Humans do not think, trick, manipulate, feel or lie. That is, except for a select few – Niska, Mia, and a handful of others – who are disrupting expectations due to their “consciousness code.”

The second season of Humans picks up a few months after its first season and opens with Niska (Emily Berrington), perhaps the most intriguing of the conscious Snyths,

TV Review: ‘Rebellion’

TV Review: ‘Rebellion’
On the 100th anniversary of the Easter uprising in Ireland, Sundance TV debuts the miniseries “Rebellion,” which may only be of interest to students of Irish history. Even those viewers of this period piece should be prepared to have their patience tested.

Rebellion,” which is set in 1916 in Dublin, only fitfully supplies a sense of excitement and momentum, and it regularly fails to provide meaningful context for the actions of Irish patriots hoping to free the nation from British rule during World War 1. “Rebellion” clearly aims to create a wide array of viewpoints on this tense period in Irish history, but manages to sabotage itself regularly with questionable pacing and an ungainly bunch of under-developed characters.

There is a slightly heavier focus on a few characters like Elizabeth Butler (Charlie Murphy), a rich young woman who sympathizes with the rebels, and Jimmy Mahon (Brian Gleeson), a socialist leader in the Irish Citizens Army.

VOD Vault #4 – Krampus / Holidays

Another Sunday and another installment of VOD Vault, taking a look at some of this weeks on-demand releases that have hit various VOD platforms here in the UK. This week we have a very seasonal edition, featuring two films that take a horrific look at the holidays…

Krampus

Stars: Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania Lavie Owen, Krista Stadler | Directed by Michael Dougherty

Krampus has seemingly become the de jour villain in the horror genre recently. We’ve already had two movies featuring the evil anti-Santa, Krampus: The Christmas Devil and Krampus: The Reckoning; and now comes a third. Although unlike its seasonal brethren, this Krampus at least made it into cinemas – and so it should have. This is the latest film from director Michael Dougherty, who exploded onto the UK horror scene a few years back when his Halloween anthology Trick ‘r’ Treat was screened at Frightfest.
